We currently have multiple tab tags open on our site:

Tabs are a graphical user interface feature that allows multiple documents to be contained within a single window.

The tag has no usage guidance, can you help us create it?

The last possibly from an earlier cleanup.

I suggest moving the remaining browser based tags to browser-tabs or all to tabbed-interface. (which a browser interface is just one specific instance off. So tab-interface would be more generic than browser-tab, worksheet-tab, beer-on-tab, ...)

  • Are browser tags any different than everything else tagged as "tabs"? Or are there multiple "tab" categories that are remaining? – Raystafarian Dec 15 '15 at 15:54

I don't see the point in any tab-related tag. I'd vote for cleaning them all up and synonymizing them with .

The last part is a joke ;P

    Concur. I don't think there's anything in-scope for SuperUser that involves tabs, which is both different from other problems affecting a given product and universally-applicable to tab-related problems in all applications. – Iszi Dec 17 '15 at 15:37
  • So, tabs are not Super. ;-) – clacke Dec 17 '15 at 16:15

    @clacke Tabs are awesome. But telling people that your problem involves tabs is as helpful as telling people that your problem involves buttons. It isn't helpful at all. – Der Hochstapler Dec 17 '15 at 19:46

    I have a problem that involves computers. Can we make a tag for that? – Dan Henderson Dec 21 '15 at 5:33
  • @DanHenderson I couldn't have said it better myself! Of course we use tabs every day, but will we ever need a question about the tabs themselves? – BonsaiOak Dec 22 '15 at 0:56

    Jokes aside, has anyone read the original cleanup @Hennes mentions? meta.superuser.com/questions/3892/merge-tags-tab-and-tabs?lq=1 points out there are legitimate questions related to the tab-key and/or the tab-character. – Randall Dec 22 '15 at 22:09
  • @OliverSalzburg A quick look at the tabs and browser-tabs tags shows that there are many questions where the tag is more noise than signal, but also several that are actually specifically about the interaction between tabs, tab-specific preferences or plugins etc. – clacke Dec 26 '15 at 23:09
